Congratulations to Aalborg on this more than deserved victory. You can't win a game like this with our efficiency in attack. It's tough to swallow, but unfortunately it wasn't our day today.

It's always something special for me to play in this arena. That's why it was also a special game for me. We took on today's task, played well and are therefore very happy with the result.

Dujshebaev Quote
Both teams delivered an amazing performance here today. Goalkeeper Mandic definitely had a day, and I believe he's the main reason why we did not secure both points here today. However, we've got to keep it real and say that after such a match, we simply must be happy with this point in the end.
Talant Dujshebaev
Head coach, Kielce
Kos Quote
This is the third game this season in which we ended up losing point(s) in the final second, and that's something we'll have to work for starting with the road game in Kielce, and the home one against Szeged.

Karpati Quote
We didn't start well and it was difficult for us because we had to change a lot in our internal positions. Our attack worked and thanks to that we were not at a bigger disadvantage. In the second half our defense got better, we fought well, and the players coming off the bench were able to add a lot to our game.

Eurofarm Quote
It's always a great feeling to play in Szeged as it's one of the best halls in Europe. In the beginning we followed our coach's tactical vision, but this did not work in the second, mostly because Roli Mikler was great.

Ortega Quote
We are happy to have won here after the tough period we have had with a lot of matches. I've been here twice and it's great to win in this arena, especially since I got sacked after the last, worse result here.
Carlos Ortega
Head coach, Barça
We played a good first half - in attack and defense. But we played against the best team in the world and that showed.

It was a tough game in which we made too many mistakes in the first 40 minutes. We got better and better in the second half and were particularly convincing in crunch time. In the end, I'm very proud of my team after all the exertions of the past few days.

Head coach, SCM Magdeburg
